Holding the Buddha in One's Palm


"The mahamudra meditator looks into the negative experience with direct insight or at least with a childlike innocence. He actually finds himself faced with the gentle smile of primordial beauty. The mahamudra tradition describes this experience as "holding a Buddha' in one's palm" ... For a mahamudra meditator there will always be order in life even amid chase; love amid hatred; light amid darkness; joy amid misery; enlightenment amid confusion."

(excerpt from Moonbeams of Mahamudra

In homage to the full moon, the Indian Mahamudra master, Tilopa.
